Primary Reflex Therapy

Primary reflex therapy uses the Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (MNRI). MNRI helps integrate primary reflexes, which, in turn, treats developmental delays or disorders.

Primary Reflex Therapy at HearSense SC is a specialized service that focuses on the Masgutova Method (MNRI) for primary reflexes. Our expert, Dr. Megan Thomas, has attended MNRI courses and is well-versed in the application of this method.

The Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (MNRI)

The Masgutova Method is a set of programs focused on the restoration and maturation of primary motor reflex patterns. These reflex patterns play a key role in providing protection during infancy and when neurosensorimotor challenges are present. They also contribute to the development of progressively more complex automatic motor reflex schemes, learned motor skills, and advanced motor planning, communication, and cognitive development.

The MNRI method recognizes that reflexes can become dysfunctional due to congenital disorders, trauma, prolonged intermittent or chronic stress, or non-congenital disease. These conditions can compromise the central nervous system, sensory system, or motor system, leading to reflex dysfunction or deeper pathology.

Who Can Benefit from Primary Reflex Therapy?

Anyone and everyone can potentially benefit from the Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (MNRI) Method. While the MNRI Method can be used as part of a wellness or performance optimization program, it is more commonly sought out and used for people facing far greater challenges, often characterized by a broad range of labels and diagnoses.

The MNRI Method targets underlying neurosensorimotor mechanisms. It recognizes primary motor reflex dysfunction and addresses it regardless of the underlying cause. By isolating challenged primary motor reflexes and addressing the underlying neurosensorimotor mechanisms related to the isolated primary motor reflexes, MNRI Method restorative techniques can reduce or eliminate the resulting automatic, learned, and advanced developmental challenges.

Our Approach

At HearSense SC, we apply the Masgutova Method to help individuals improve their function or even restore neurosensorimotor dysfunction. Our approach is holistic and tailored to the unique needs of each individual. We aim to help our clients improve their motor dysfunctions, relational and socialization issues, planning, generalization, and socialization issues by addressing the unique combination of primary motor reflexes that signal specific neurosensorimotor dysfunction.
